Four local historical societies are collaborating on a project to draw attention to the remarkable history of a road that is often traveled by many of us who live in South King County. Did you know that Military Road is one of the very oldest roads in the State of Washington? And that it was built by some of the people who went on to make names for themselves in the Civil War?
Learn more about the work being undertaken by the Historical Society of Federal Way, the Greater Kent Historical Society, the Highline Historical Society and the Tukwila Historical Society to make sure that the significance of this road is not forgotten.
Take a peek at the brochure that we are beginning to circulate:
That is why, in conjunction with the 150-year anniversary of the Civil War, we are planning programs, exhibits, and other events along the road, and we welcome individuals or businesses who want to sponsor any of these activities. Contact email@example.com.
